btw, norm, you adjust your own forks?

....was talking to Jason at Moto-I, and he says adjusting the spring shouldn't really be necessary as they come pretty adjustable as is. So no reason to have them resprung? What say you.

bottoming out?

put a bit more preload into them.
its fairly easy im sure bobbert can handle it...even you can use a adjustable wrench cover your adjuster with a rag...and give it 1 or 1.5 turns...
and go from there...

and yes i had done all my own sag when i got the bike.
but then had barry help me dial it in at a few trackdays...

as for that video that would be insane...i be there was tons of power wheelies

shouldnt need new springs on an RSVR unless you're significantly heavy or light. it's the 1999-2003 bikes that needed new springs due to being too soft, especially the forks.

With all gear on, I'm about 238 or so. Maybe a tad more, I'll have to check again later. But yeah, tis what Jason at M-I said.

I'm rollin' the 07.5 brah. I'm just going to need to turn it up half a notch is all. Thanks oaker.

hmmm, cool article.

Perhaps you don't understand. The majority of the adjustments have already been done by Barry. Yes, there is a zip tie on the forks, this is how I know I'm still barely bottoming out every once in a while. I'm not looking to get it adjusted for the track, as 99% of this bikes lifetime will be on the street. And thus, with it being the way it is, it needs to be just a hair tighter. I'll probably be doing this later next month when it's dryer out and I can brake it as hard as I want.

btw, you gonna make it tomorrow? I may or may not ride. My legs are killing me at the moment. So I'll have to see how I feel tomorrow AM. before I decide.
